Thanks,Chris..but you know what I mean..it is so late this year..just seen your comment on Hywel's pics,so I know you feel the same .:o)

12 Jun, 2012

It looks gorgeous, but know what you mean. Wisteria was amazing last year but now all gone and sad. However, chins up summer must be on its way? x

12 Jun, 2012

 

Think most of us are fed up looking at green! Looks good. Nice and neat and tidy too!

12 Jun, 2012

 

Thanks N3..I'm sure it will look different before too long..I have ordered summer,but I must be in a queuing system! Lol.
..............
Thanks,Scottish,as it is so small,..I have no problem keeping it tidy :o)..but I quite like tidy..think it just depends what kind of space and garden you have ...I do like other styles,but it wouldn't work here :o)

12 Jun, 2012

 

I think it looks great!

Some of mine have been and gone...they've done their year in just a couple of months!!

13 Jun, 2012

13 Jun, 2012

 

Somewhere nice?

13 Jun, 2012

 

A long weekend with Alison,Anthony and Thomas. in Lincolnshire...in a caravan ,would you believe! bet we end up with the bunk beds !...I bags the bottom one ..:o)..and a few days at a nice country hotel in Derbyshire,in early September..with Carole and Harry..(goy member,pansypotter)...more befitting for an oldie like me ,Lol.

13 Jun, 2012

 

lol! Thomas will love it!!
...but, can I come with you to the nice country hotel, please? ;)))

13 Jun, 2012

 

Boring ? Never Bloomer , I grant I know what you mean about wanting some blooming - but it looks a lovely garden !

13 Jun, 2012

 

B. it looks lovely, neat and tidy and it will bloom before long.

13 Jun, 2012

 

looks very neat and tidy Bloomer, lovely :-)

13 Jun, 2012

 

So will we,Karen..just want to see his reaction to the seaside..and all the things to do onsite..might be tears dragging him away...him,not me ! Lol...will have a word with Carole..I'm sure we could sneak you in .:o)
..........
Thank you Paul,G.mage and S.lad...it's getting there..but just waiting for some sun..aren't we all!.:o)

13 Jun, 2012

 

I see it Sandra will look fab when you Gary starts performing, dont think I have met him Yet lol just going to p.m you;0)

13 Jun, 2012

 

We went out with Thomas,Carole..seen your PM and replied:o)..Gary needs TLC in the winter..and none of his offspring have ever survived for me..this is the original one,my friend in Lincolnshire did for me..she must have greener fingers ! Lol.I can't understand it,as all my others do ok..this one starts off well and then dies :o((

13 Jun, 2012

 

I would be more than happy to look after your garden while you are away! ;)))

13 Jun, 2012

 

Thanks Lil..happy to accept your offer..Water butts are full to capacity..outdoor tap is in working order..just in case of severe drought and hot sunshine,you understand..I will leave key under Gary Rhodes..you know what I mean...''nudge nudge,wink ,wink,"and make yourself at home..:o)x

13 Jun, 2012

 

Ahem...I hope this fellow Gary doesn't mind me poking and groping around underneath him :0, and between you and me, is he good looking?? ;)))
No worries, you can trust me.......

13 Jun, 2012

 

I'm sure he wouldn't ,Lil..he might even help you to find the key :o)..good looking? erm..pretty average,I would say...skinny,high spiky hair (or used to have) .. a well known TV chef,and written lots of cookery books...the latter two qualities,may just over ride the others.. think of the lovely meals you coulld have...if you find the key .!Lol :o)

13 Jun, 2012

 

Lol, I just googled him...shame he's married ;) Wonder if he's interested in a short fling? Mean cooking for me of course! ;)))

13 Jun, 2012

 

Behave you two!!!!!!! LOL

14 Jun, 2012

 

;)))

14 Jun, 2012

 

Now I know what kind you go for,Lil...it's supposed to be the way to a mans heart is through HIS stomach...not yours! Lol...and G.mage ..us behave? I don't know what you mean..she says innocently :o)))

14 Jun, 2012

 

Gattina......I have spent DECADES concentrating on the man's stomach! Think it's about time I started thinking about mine ;)))
GM lives vicariously through our naughtiness...lol ;)))

14 Jun, 2012

 

Wow,that was the shortest flight ever,Lil...suddenly, I have moved to Italy? :o))

14 Jun, 2012

 

Grrrrrrr......it's your avatars Bloomer!!! Almost identical. Presbyopia and senility have nothing to do with it ;) I beg your forgiveness :/

14 Jun, 2012

 

Of course they don't Lil..(tee hee) ..we just have impeccable taste,that's all ! :o))

14 Jun, 2012

 

Just wish everyone would post their face.....less likely to confuse me! :))

14 Jun, 2012

 

You would prefer my present Avatar,Lil...trust me ! Lol.

15 Jun, 2012

 

Lol and you are still at it!!!!!! I, like you, B. prefer a 'flower' instead of my face!!!

15 Jun, 2012

 

I've seen your face Gill, I prefer it.
Highly doubt it Bloomer :)

15 Jun, 2012

 

You smooth talker you,Lil....we do go on a bit,don't we ,
G.mage ? Well,it is the footie season..we have to pass on these long evenings somehow..although I might sneak a peep at England versus Sweden tonight ! :o)

15 Jun, 2012

 

Hmmm, Pimp claims you are in bed by 5pm???

15 Jun, 2012

 

Does he now? Lol...I have been known to 'nod' off early evening...after food ! ..Oh,hang on ...England just scored .:o)) ..yes I'm still up,and it's almost 8.30 pm....big yawn and stretch ! zzzz

15 Jun, 2012

 

...I hate football...
It's been interfering with Midsommer Murders all week...

15 Jun, 2012

 

I don't hate it Karen,but find it so boring..but...hold up your hands in horror...I can't stand Midsummer Murders !
There,I have finally 'come out' and said it ! Lol..I shall await your torrent of abuse :o))

15 Jun, 2012

 

Sweet dreams Bloomer ;))

15 Jun, 2012

 

Good morning Lil..up and about again..no dreams,sweet or otherwise ! :o)

16 Jun, 2012

 

:))
I was going to ask how he knew your bed time, but am much too polite to ask ;)))

16 Jun, 2012

 

It was you who suggested he knew Lil...and of course you are too polite to ask ..not! Lol..I must have missed something along the way...? Sorry to disappoint you..:o))

16 Jun, 2012

 

He posted for all of GoY to see on another pic somewhere. That and something vile about Gattina's teeth! She soon remedied his ill manners though ;)))

16 Jun, 2012

 

Sounds about right,Lil :o) ..Did I retaliate ?

16 Jun, 2012

 

Nope.......still waiting for it though :)

16 Jun, 2012

 

What a plonker..no names mentioned ! Lol..I'm sure Gattina's teeth are worthy of an advert for toothpaste..:o)

17 Jun, 2012

 

The trouble with growing to like you bloomer is I now have to wade through more of these conversations....ah well something to do I suppose ;))

18 Jun, 2012

 

and what better way to pass the time of day ? Lol...

18 Jun, 2012

18 Jun, 2012

18 Jun, 2012

 

Becoming a pattern for us here Bloomer, me wishing you sweet dreams. Thinking maybe Pimp was telling the truth ;)

19 Jun, 2012

19 Jun, 2012

 

OMG..Please don't say you've woke up all Perky ?

19 Jun, 2012

19 Jun, 2012

 

I lasted much longer than that today,Lil..we went to out local Farm shop cafe..and had a mega all day "English breakfast.."at lunchtime..and bought some lovely home made bread back with us.:o) ..Who wouldn't be perky ...and full up.? Lol.

19 Jun, 2012

 

Garden looks lovely Bloomer - like a kid desperately holding in a secret that you know they're gonna burst with if they don't tell someone soon!

28 Jun, 2012

 

Thanks Muddy...I am going to post a pic soon...it is now starting to burst forth at last..seems such a long time to wait this year...lovely to see you again,by the way..hope your garden is looking good too.:o)

28 Jun, 2012

 

Let's just say it's a work in progress . . . ;-)

28 Jun, 2012

 

That's good..I'm sure it will be fine..we all tend to be critacal of our own gardens..don't know why..I don't want perfection ..:o)
